Geist author Philippa Ballantine review æ 103 G far predatory and horrifying than any mere haunting And as she uncovers a tradition of twisted rituals passed down through the dark reaches of history Sorcha will be forced to reconsider everything she thinks she knowsAnd if she makes it out of Ulrich alive what in Hell is she returning to. Buddy read with the MacHalosI was really tempted to give this one a 5 star rating but there were several issues that made me reconsider it First and foremost view spoiler I don t tolerate cheating And while I can understand that Sorcha s marriage is dead and has been dead for a long time it s not technically over At no point has she spoken with her husband about it and about ending it all hide spoiler

Geist author Philippa Ballantine review æ 103 Between the living and the dead is the Order of the Deacons protectors of the Empire guardians against possession sentinels enlisted to ward off the malevolent haunting of the geistsAmong the most powerful of the Order is Sorcha now thrust into partnership with the novice Deacon Merrick Cham. Unholy bones I need a smoke As clich as it sounds in Geist Kate Daniels meets Sabriel and together they wreak havoc for the greater good of allNo seriously when reading I kept thinking that if Sabriel grew up a little bit jaded overworked and overstressed had a marriage misfire on her and developed a cynical streak she would be just like Deacon Sorcha Faris On the other hand there is the Young Pretender and I reckon that every self respecting Kate Daniels fan will relish the hello kitty moment and before I forget trigger warnings undead kind of but bearable love triangles like tricycles with one dysfunctional wheel and instagram instant pot noodles instalove make it two actuallyword nimble whatever is wrong with thesauri these daysBut I digressYou might have a feeling that you don t know what this review is about and that perhaps I have started writing it from the middle I confess this was intentional as the book opens in a very similar way From the very first page we are thrown into a gushing torrent of events and the reader might have an impression that the initial chapters somehow vanished by accident Since I don t mind when an Author kicks me into the depths I liked that a lot especially that both the world and the heroine were refreshingly unorthodox The world is rich with a complex and well developed magic system that reuires a team of two people to work and a tremendous set up that borrows from traditional fantasy but also has elements of an urban or paranormal romance and a dash of steampunk on top of it The heroine is spectacular Many authors aim for a sarcastic rebel but they end up with a cuddly diddly dee Blackthorn for instance suffered this fate I really admire how Sorcha has been developed Late thirties and a smoker Strong but not so controlled Volatile Prickly a little bit brusue to the point of being snappish A firm believer in the educational potential of burning offenders at stake Lacking diplomatic skills Driven by obligations even if it costs her her heart This scene when she lights her cigarette from a glowing gauntlet was pure goldI read in other reviews that people dislike the book because they do not believe the protagonists to be sound enough I do not have a feeling that characterisation suffers because the book is short To the contrary these small snippets are very nicely positioned to cast light on various whys and hows and other personal aspects But the book is very nicely balanced between the main protagonists the three of them and while each and every one of them has certain abilities none has the awful chosen one vibes And as the old rules concerning unliving have been suspended new dangers emerge and foes lurk from within these three will have their hands full in trying to anticipate and prevent their opponents next move Speaking of villains Oof Look for them somewhere between Boring Alley and the Predictable Suare One of the main reasons for my something is missing feeling and lowering my rating The other one is romance ultimately I really cannot get all emotional about a relationship that is unethical view spoilersince Sorcha cheats on her husband hide spoiler The metal planet relationship A study of celestial influence relationship that is unethical view spoilersince Sorcha cheats on her husband hide spoiler

Geist author Philippa Ballantine review æ 103 Bers They have been dispatched to the isolated village of Ulrich to aide the Priory with a surge of violent geist activity With them is Raed Rossin Pretender to the throne that Sorcha is sworn to protect and bearer of a terrible curseBut what greets them in the strange settlement is somethin. Update Second attempt November 2018 GOD this was so GOOOOOODfor a while The first half blew me away with its creative magic system great action scenes and highly HIGHLY lovable main characters The whole time I was thinking WHY Why on earth would I not finish such masterpiece back in 2013 And I jinxed itPros Magic System simple but unusual and uite fascinating I loved how the magic users overcome their weaknesses by working in pairs the gauntlets were an interesting tool and the fight scenes were written perfectly Characters They were well fleshed out cool but with their own uniue uirks I appreciated the fact that most of the characters are above 30 and you get a nice contrast when the younger ones are introduced I mean how cool is it to have a middle aged woman as the most powerful famous and highly aggressive magic user who has to deal with her marriage falling apart while she s fighting zombies Action scenes Difficult to write but such joy to read It helped that I was already in love with the magic system and protagonistsSo everything was going great there is suddenly a huge reveal of who the actual bad guys are pretty generic villains with boring motivations I have to say and an EPIC fight ensues Good guys win andthe book keeps goingand going and going And this is where I gave up 5 years ago NOT THIS TIME Cons The Book should ve ended in the Middle personal opinion The second half felt really random almost like an afterthought Sure there was a fight at the end but compared to the one in the Middle it feltanticlimatic Love interests couldn t buy the romance XD Once again it felt forced and irrelevant Writing style Not sure why but it managed to lose me on a few occasions I noticed a few other reviewers said the same thing it s not bad or anything Just hard to keep your focus during longer expositions especially when listening to the audiobook Villains boringSpeaking of which the audiobook was narrated by the author herself and she did a PHENOMENAL JOB Loved her rendition of each character and it really added to my level of enjoymentConclusion In the end I liked Geist but I m not sure how keen I am on checking out the seuel January 2013 DNFMight give this one another go one day

    EBOOK FREE (Geist author Philippa Ballantine) Í Philippa Ballantine I'll rate Geist resorting to the all purpose three stars but the review is going to be hard to write Because I liked the story Philippa Ballantine narrates in Geist very much but I also think she kinda wrecked her own shipHey Geist is by no means a bad book on the contrary it's full of great ideas imaginative situations an intriguing elaborate worldbuilding and a solid cast of characters It doesn't really live up to its
